The World is a Cancer Eating Itself Away": A Study on Robin Soans' Verbatim Play Talking to Terrorists.

Lecturer; Hind Ahmed al-Kurwy

for humanities sciences al qadisiya, Volume 16, Issue 1, Pages 7-26

The present study aims at analyzing the elaboration of the theme of terrorism in Robin Soans' (1946- ) Verbatim play Talking to Terrorists (2005). In this play, Soans presents terrorism in its different forms, tactics, and effects through making not only the terrorists to speak but also the individuals who had certain experiences with terrorism. Moreover, the play attempts to raise questions and solutions of how to control the plague that has been always responsible for reaping lives for nothing.
There is no universal issue attracted Man's attention, interest, curiosity, fear or even argumentation as it happened and is happening with the issue of terrorism. This might be attributed to the way terrorism is firmly linked to human life, fears, emotions, actions and reactions that used to be hidden before and now are all exposed. Actually the interest in terrorism is related to the sort of belief and thinking that dominates every nation and the various ideologies that control (or manipulate) it in dealing with internal or external affairs. As such, terrorism, which is based on conflict, is also responsible for creating conflicts inside nations as well all over the world and its condition as the direct outcome of wars and violent practices and damages. Some look at terrorism as a suitable means to serve announced or hidden agendas. Others view terrorism as a harmful action with catastrophic consequences because, sometimes it is only innocent people are entangled without any particular guilt just because they belong to a certain nation or a specific religious trend or even because they possess a particular political belief. The argumentation of this subject is rather a complex one to view or to discuss because it varies as the variety of human population and because "One culture's murderer is another's martyr [and] revolutionaries also can be freedom fighters."2 Whether this or that, terrorism in the 21th century started to take a certain form: it is to be the motto of rejection or disapproval to the practices of some powers or regimes in authority. Thus, to provide a compact definition of terrorism is still a matter of debate, but those who are anti-terrorists agree on the general frame of terrorism as:

The Revival of Old Certaintiesin Seamus Heaney’s Poetry

Dr. Areej M. Jawad Al-Kafaji

for humanities sciences al qadisiya, Volume 8, Issue 2, Pages 55-60

AbstractSeamus Heaney is considered as one of the most popular poets, writing in English today. Although he wrote in a traditional simple style, his poetry is endowed with a special interest with the past, which was one of continuity for him. Thus, he refers recurrently to hid childhood in County Derry, where he was born and to Irish history in general. He tells the Catholics in Northern Ireland to stop contemplating their wounds and start thinking of the future.

Ass . Instructor. Hassan Alawi Ibead

for humanities sciences al qadisiya, Volume 10, Issue 1, Pages 7-14

The ideas adopted by John Stuart Mill(1806-1873) have their influence on English literature in the Victorian Age. This is because these ideas are in harmony with the spirit of the age which is characterized by a strong sense of inquiry and curiosity concerning God, Nature, Religion and so many other serious matters. Moreover, these ideas are a sharp reflection of many aspects of the social, economic, political and intellectual life in the Victorian Age.
This paper is devoted to study some of the aspects of the influence of J.S.Mill on Some Victorian Writers. It traces this influence on the literary production of some distinguished Victorian poets and novelists such as Tennyson, Arnold, Dickens, Hardy and some other ones.

A Study of 'Pleonasm' with Reference to some Biblical Verses

Emad Muhammed; Lecturer. Shaimaa; Lecturer. Jenan Atiya Meftin

for humanities sciences al qadisiya, Volume 19, Issue 1, Pages 7-24

This study deals with 'pleonasm' as one of the figures of speech in English. Pleonasm is defined as the use of superfluous words , phrases or sentences in speaking or writing. Such a use often results in repetition of the same idea, as in '' I heard the conversation with my ears. ''. What is superfluous is the phrase ''with my ears'' because it repeats a notion which is already part of the meaning of the verb ''heard'' : One hears with his ears.

THE ECHOES OF IBSENISMIN STRINDBERG’S DRAMA

for humanities sciences al qadisiya, Volume 11, Issue 1, Pages 73-92

ABSTRACTHenrik Ibsen (1828-1906) and August Strindberg (1849-1912) are two modern dramatists who belong to different nationalities (the first is Norwegian and the later is Swedish), but they are almost alike in tackling social subjects. Both playwrights’ drama have been characterized by a powerful style and coloured by didactic and psychological impulses that make Ibsen’s theatre as well as Strindberg’s a mirror that reflects the reality of modern life in general and modern woman in particular. Actually, Ibsen, the father of modern drama, and Strindberg, the highly controversial figure in modern dramatic literature, are two Scandinavian dramatists who join their hands in many aspects and reflect their hostility in others. It is true that each one has his uniqueness and significance in the development of modern drama in particular and modern literature in general and it is equally true that the interpretation of one’s work is done with a reference to the other’s. In brief, Ibsenism is the modern dramatic school whose initiator is Ibsen and strindberg is one of its talented students

THE SEMANTIC CHANGE IN ENGLISH AND ARABIC: A CONTRASTIVE STUDY

Asst. Lecturer. Lubna Ali Kadhim

for humanities sciences al qadisiya, Volume 15, Issue 1, Pages 7-23

Semantic change refers to the way in which the meaning of a word changes over long or short stretches of time. It can be internally or externally motivated .The equivalent to the paradigm in morphology is ,in semantics , the word field in which words and their meanings stand in a network of relationships .The alteration of meaning occurs because words are constantly used and what is intended by speakers is not exactly the same each time .If a different intention for a word is shared by the speech community and becomes established in usage then a semantic change has occurred.
This study is divided into three sections , the first is devoted to semantic change in English ,while the second is going to discuss it in Arabic ; however ,the third section will shed light on some samples chosen from the two languages to show how semantic change practically takes place across their history .The aim of this research is to state the stages of those two languages` development ,types of semantic change ,reasons and processes of word formation in each language . The following conclusions are shown:
1. Semantic change is , just like other types of linguistic change , continuous, not sudden but gradual and universal .
2. Gaps in the historical record between the identifiable stages called for the loss of the middle stage of Arabic , on the one hand , and produced the illusion of discontinuity between Anglo-Saxon and Middle English and between Middle English and Modern English , on the other hand .
3. Causes of semantic change are either linguistic or extra –linguistic .
4. As far as these two languages are concerned , they have passed different stages and were subject to different political and social factors , yet they have almost the same types .

A Semantic Study of Stance Adverbswith Reference to the Language of Emotionin Katherine Mansfield'sshort fiction Bliss

Sawsan Kareem Al-Saaidi

for humanities sciences al qadisiya, Volume 13, Issue 3, Pages 25-42

AbstractEnglish has a rich supply of grammatical devices used to express “stance” which can be defined as the linguistic mechanism used by speakers/writers to convey their personal feelings, assessments, attitudes, judgments, or commitment about the proposition. The paper explores adverbs used to mark stance. By discussing the entire system of stance adverbs , the paper aims at investigating this kind of adverbs semantically. Stance adverbs can be classified into three types epistemic, attitudinal and style. ''Epistemic stance'' is defined as the degree of certainty or evidence towards the content whereas “attitudinal stance” conveys more personal feelings, and “style stance” relates to the speaker’s or writer’s comment on the way in which the information in a clause is presented. The analysis shows that the texts of psycho-narration and free indirect discourse are rich in emotional language beside the extensive use of epistemic stance adverbs
